From 22 until 25 of October the first mobility arrived and the first country that started was Belgium!The program started at 9:00 in the morning when we all received our partners in Oostende, specifically in mu-zee-um.
With coffee, juice, tea and some chocolates we started our first contact with each other and Ewout presented the timeline program for the next whole two intense days.
After the presentation we started with a guide tour in Mu.ZEE place where the participants could enjoy, for free, in the free time that they had later.
Finished this tour we went all together to the City Hall of Oostende where received us the Chair women and we took a picture which days after was in the local newspaper from Oostende!
After the dinner, which was a delicious kind of sandwich free buffet, we did the Marvin Gaye tour.This tour was very useful to show better our partners the heart of the city.
When we finished the tour, the coordinators form all the countries had a meeting while the learners had free time before to meet again on supper time in a very cute restaurant called Grand Bassin, where everybody had de opportunity to taste the most typical croquettes from Oostende called “garnaal kroket”, mmm…! :P
But the day hasn’t finished yet…
After the supper we came back to mu-zee-um to make the presentations that each group has done about themselves. These exhibitions were done while everybody had the chance to taste “Keyte” beer (the famous beer also from Oostende).
Good night …zZzZzZz…
On the second day we started going to Bruges. What beautiful city!
To start we went to the Concertgebouw and Sound Factory where we could play very moderns ways to create music and where also we discovered this amazing and new building.
That place has the balance between the music and the new technologies.
After this first activity and the dinner, which we had also inside this particular building, everybody could enjoy a tour for Bruges that was made for three of our seniors. It was very interesting and funny and to end it in a good way, we went to the beer’s museum and we tasted the typical Bruges’s beer called “Brugse Zot”.
Finally, and as a way to close that first mobility, we went to the Arne Quinze statues, which are very near to the Private Yacht Club of Oostende where we had the pleasure to eat.
After we ate a delicious fish and drunk a good wine, we said goodbye to each other knowing that it was the only the beginning of these two years plenty of activities that we are looking forward to!
Through our blog, the Oostende team thank everybody for their motivations and these two amazing days!
Dank je wel allemaal.
